We arrived at the showground about 6ish there was already lots of vans
turning up and there was a big queue to get in. We parked up in the SSVC
camping area and set up the tents and gezbos and waited for Paul to turn
up in this bus. After we had set up camp we all went in to Malvern for
a curry and drinks.
After everybody woke up hung over we set about cooking breakfast then
we could hit the big auto jumble to find some bargains. There were loads
of companies there, and it's great to see what they do for your van in
real life with out looking at pictures on the net. There also was a big
selection of buses for sale to.
After we had a good look around which take most of the day and you never
see everything. We signed up for the big split and we found a stand making
up stickers so we had some made up saying "veedubbing.co.uk"
as we were picking them up we saw a big ball of black smoke and I could
not be some fatty BBQ so we ran down to the bottom site with a big crowed
to see a wedge van going up in flames, it was not a nice thing to see
there were people saying that it was bad stereo wiring that started it.
When everybody was back at the vans we started to cook dinner and drink
(It was a shame Claire and Jo were to drunk
for the cooking in a camper comp) and play on the BMX and just hang out
chatting about vans and what we should have bought that day. Ok when we
peaked on the drinking state (about 8 O'clock) we headed for the main
barn the band was not as good as years before were stayed there then went
outside to look at some vans.
Once again everybody woke up feeling a bit ruff after the night before
but we had a big fry up which sorted everyone out. We packed up the vans
and took them over for the big split once we had done that we had one
last look around and picked up some bits we needed for the vans. When
we could get the vans out of the big split we headed home. The clutch
went on one of the vans on the way home so they left the site at 3 and
go home at 11 not the best trip home but a cool weekend.
